I have an early, early  Ford 120. To keep the hood shut,there are supposed to be 2 bolts (best I can tell from a manual I was able to download). Does someone know what kind of bolts they are? In the parts manual they appear to be some kind of knurled thumb screw. The picture is not very clear though. I think they need to be 5/16 coarse thread (based on the threaded part they go into). My question is what kind of head they would have. One would have to open the hood to refuel so I cant imagine needing a wrench. Note this parts manual I am mentioning is an old Jacobson manual. All the Ford manuals posted in this forum appear to be for newer models than mine as indicated by the type of hood closure, the big start button I have etc.

Knureled thumbscrews are exactly what goes in there. They can be had from Ace hardware, maybe even McMaster Carr. I even seen em on Feepay:)
